Dianna Agron has joined the ranks of Glee stars to release a statement regarding Cory Monteith’s sudden death. When the show began, Cory and Dianna’s characters, Finn and Quinn, were the hottest item at McKinley. Their story was one that Gleeks followed closely, as it was filled with intrigue, infidelity, and subterfuge. It is no wonder that Dianna, along with her fellow cast-mates, are still trying to recover from this tragedy.
“I have never lost a friend. In this difficult time, I am leaning on all of the wonderful memories we shared with Cory, how many ways he was able to make us smile. Glee was a gift to all of us. It gave us a family in this industry. We really cut our teeth and grew up on this show. In playing underdogs, we learned that we had dug into the hearts of our viewers and that we could stay there.”
“Cory is so deserving of that place in everyone’s hearts. He was one of the most generous and kind people that I have ever met. He had a smart, curious mind, he was an enormous talent. He was loving to not only me, but my family. My heart goes out to his family, to Lea, to everyone that is struggling with the loss of our friend. We will miss you Cory. We will always carry a piece of you with us.”
Agron’s statement comes four days after the death of her dear friend, and one day after Cory’s onscreen and off-screen love, Lea Michele, released her statement via a spokesperson. Agron and Michele’s characters were often fighting over the studly Finn Hudson on Glee. After Quinn broke Finn’s heart when he learned that her baby was Puck’s and not his, Rachel was there as a shoulder to cry on and a willing participant in helping to put the pieces of his heart back together. That story carried on when Rachel and Finn broke up, with Finn running back into the arms of his first love. But, alas, Quinn and Finn were not meant to be, and Finchel became the hottest ticket in town.
We at PopWrapped have nothing but love and respect for Cory, his talent, and the many people he left behind. We will continue to send our thoughts to all of those impacted by his tragic death.
